"PodiumGate" and the Mysterious $19,000 Lectern Controversy

Arkansas has always had its fair share of political intrigue, but the recent controversy surrounding a lectern purchase has taken things to a whole new level.

Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders, a prominent figure in the national political arena, finds herself amidst a storm of debates and discussions that many are humorously dubbing "PodiumGate."

Imagine the surprise when it was revealed that the Arkansas Governor's office had splashed out a staggering $19,029.25 on a lectern.

With similar models available online for a mere fraction of the price, eyebrows were raised, and questions began to pour in.

As if the price tag wasn't enough to stir the pot, an individual claiming to have insider knowledge stepped forward.

This whistleblower's claims added more layers to the already complex narrative, making it the talk of the town.

Digging deeper, it was found that the lectern was sourced from a firm with ties to a well-known Republican figure.

The absence of a standard bidding process further fueled the flames of speculation.

Having previously served as President Donald Trump’s White House press secretary, Governor Sanders is no stranger to the limelight. She swiftly refuted any allegations of impropriety, viewing the entire episode as a politically motivated smear campaign.

In a move that showcased party unity, the Republican Party of Arkansas decided to cover the cost of the lectern, standing firmly behind Governor Sanders. With the controversy refusing to die down, there are rumblings about a potential audit of Sanders’s office in relation to the lectern purchase.

For perspective, similar lecterns are listed on AmpliVox Portable Sound Systems for around $6,962 to $7,553.

Custom made in your choice of color fabric accent, the AmpliVox Falcon Patriot is a sleek and regal lectern guaranteed to impress any audience.

Its contemporary construction, elegant styling and durability will stand the test of time.

Present all your materials on the generous reading table surface and store all your equipment in the three insert storage shelves.

The ST3046 model connects to an existing in-house sound system which includes the sensitive AmpliVox Electret Condenser Gooseneck Hot Mic that picks up your voice from up to 20" away.

Think Pink! October Breast Cancer Awareness and Prevention

Every October, people all over the world show their support for everyone affected by breast cancer.

There is no sure way to prevent breast cancer. But there are things you can do that might lower your risk. Many risk factors are beyond your control, such as being born female and getting older. But other risk factors can be changed and may lower your risk.

The food you eat, the substances you’re exposed to, and your level of physical activity impact your body’s production and function of hormones, inflammatory substances and immune factors that have the power to promote… or prevent cancer.

Ways to Prevent Breast Cancer
The following is a list that may help keep you from developing breast cancer. It is not a guarantee that you won't get breast cancer. However, by following these strategies you may lower your odds of getting breast cancer and you may also improve your overall health.

Remember to get annual mammograms and clinical breast exams beginning at 40.
Engage in moderately intense physical activity for at least 30 minutes on 5 days or more.
Eat five or more servings of fruit and vegetables, limiting processed and red meats. Choose whole grains.

Women who gained 20 pounds or more as an adult are 40 percent more likely to develop breast cancer.
Drinking even small amounts of alcohol is linked with an increased risk of breast cancer in women.
Smoking is linked to a higher risk of breast cancer in younger, premenopausal women.

About 5% to 10% of breast cancers are thought to be hereditary, caused by abnormal genes.
Breast-feeding might play a role, the longer you breast-feed, the greater the protective effect.
Menopausal Hormone Therapy
(MHT) studies have concluded that the risks often outweigh the benefits.

Founded in 2010 and offered year round, AmpliVox’s Pink Podium Promise donates special pink versions our Pinnacle Podiums to licensed or certified breast cancer awareness organizations to help their voices be heard.

The Pink Podiums were distributed to hundreds of cancer society chapters, foundations, hospitals and local governments.

"AmpliVox products are designed to make people look good and sound good," said AmpliVox CEO Don Roth.

The Pink Podium presents a dramatic visual reinforcement of the color that has come to be associated with breast cancer awareness and prevention.

AmpliVox CEO Don Roth enthusiastically supports breast cancer awareness from his prime spot behind home plate.
